Promoting their superb new album "Earth Songs" (Ubuntu Music) we welcome the brilliant Jon Lloyd Quartet to the club. Saxophonist / composer Jon Lloyd has been part of the UK jazz and free music scene for several decades (Jon Lloyd Quartet with Paul Rogers, Mark Sanders, John Law; groups featuring Phil Wachsmann, Marcio Mattos, Stan Adler, Paul Clarvis, Tom Farmer, Asaf Sirkis), and has now turned his attention to European contemporary jazz; using classical and non-western music influences as well as jazz sources to write vibrant, melodic and emotionally direct new jazz compositions. The quartet also comprises the virtuosic John Law (Congregation, Re-Creations, Art of Sound Trio with Yuri Golubev, Asaf Sirkis) on piano, Nick Pini (Laura Marling, Seth Lakeman, Izzie Yardley, Iain Ballamy) on double bass and Alex Goodyear (Yetii, Simon Spillett, Re-Creations, Dan Newberry) on drums.
A lush, atmospheric collection of vibrant, melodic compositions written by Jon specifically for this quartet, this promises to be an enchanting night of music performed at the highest level.

"Lloyd's tunes are steeped in the ECM aesthetic, and he and long-time collaborator John Law on piano make it sound like the only music you ever want to hear." - London Jazz News
"Creative music at its best. Great European contemporary jazz." - Jazzwise
